Dell Solar Parking Lot

Amongst those companies who believe in a cleaner future, the folks from Dell have commissioned Envision Solar to complete a new solar shaded parking structure of solar trees for their headquarters in Round Rock, Texas. Dubbed the Solar Groove, the installation has been designed with 516 individual solar panels and produces more than 130kW of clean solar power. On top of offering shade to 50 parking spaces and avoiding 145,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions per year, the new installation is also connected to two CleanCharge stations, where electric vehicles can plug in for a quick charge.
